Sexlopedia: Katoptronophilia

I was trolling twitter (as I do daily), and one of my twitter friends, @Vukizzle mentioned a term, or part of a term in a tweet.  I figured, if she didn’t know what it was called, and I didn’t know what it meant, that some of you might not know what it is either…

Here is the tweet that inspired my research…

“RT @CandyAppleAlly @Vukizzle a kapto-wha? — basically it means I like to fuck in front of mirrors :)”



After a little work on the internet here is the definition:

Katoptronophilia is a paraphilia for mirrors (the Greek word for mirror is katoptron). It may include activities such as having sex in front of mirrors, masturbating in front of mirrors, enacting other paraphilias in front of a mirror, having an orgy in front of a mirror, or enacting stripping fetishism in front of mirrors.

Enacting katoptronophiliac fantasies may involve constructing environments for erotic activity in which one is completely surrounded by mirrors, sometimes including even on the ceiling. A person who is a katoptronophiliac may put mirrors all over their house so they can have sex in any room in the house.


“A young woman buys a mirror at an antique shop, and hangs it on her bathroom door. One evening, while getting undressed, she playfully says “Mirror, mirror, on my door, make my bustline forty four”.

Instantly, there is a brilliant flash of light, and her breasts grow to enormous proportions. Excitedly, she runs to tell her husband what happened, and in minutes they both return.

This time the husband crosses his fingers and says “Mirror mirror on the door, make my penis touch the floor!”.

Again, there’s a bright flash… and then his legs fall off!”
